DEAN. NEW JERSEY DELEGATION
I am requesting funding for the Resilient Coastal Urban Community and
Ecosystem (RESCUE) Initiative in the FYIO Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice,
Science and Related Agencies. The entity to receive funding for this project is for the
Monmouth University, located at 400 Cedar Avenue, West Long Branch, NJ 07764. It is
my understanding that the funding would be used to support the water quality monitoring
system. I certify that this project does not have a direct and foreseeable effect on financial
interests of my spouse or me.
I hereby certify that this request will be made publicly available on my Official
Website as required by Chainnan Obey's new Committee policy that only posted
requests will be considered.
Consistent with the Republican Leadership's policy on eannarks, I hereby certify
that to the best of my knowledge this request (I) is not directed to an entity or program
that will be named after a sitting Member of Congress; (2) is not intended to be used by
an entity to secure funds for other entities unless the use of funding is consistent with the
specified purpose of the earmark; and (3) meets or exceeds all statutory requirements for
matching funds where applicable. I further certify that should this request be included in
the bill, I will place a statement in the Congressional Record describing how the funds
will be spent and justifying the use offederal taxpayer funds.
